Baseball Preview - Padres vs. Brewers

August 11, 2009
MLB Baseball Betting Preview - San Diego Padres at Milwaukee Brewers (8:05 ET)

By Freddy Wills

Adrian Gonzalez of the PadresWe are catching a lot of value here today with the Padres facing off against the struggling Brewers. Brewers are now sliding down the wild card standings and are in jeopardy of not going to the post season.

Padres on the other hand are playing great baseball and in my opinion the reason is no other than the return of David Eckstein.

While Eckstein was out the Padres were 3-16. Since his return they are now an amazing 9-4. It just can't be a coincidence.

Eckstein is the type of player that will take pitches and make an opposing pitcher work. Something that has paid off for him and the Padres since his return.

Along with that we've got the young kid Clayton Richard starting against the Brewers for a third time. In two starts he has gone 10.2 IP and given up just 1 ER 6H and 6BB.

He needs to improve his control, but he has good stuff and should be able to put up a quality start against the Brewers who are struggling against left handed pitchers.

Brewers hitting .217 and scoring 3.38/9 vs. LHP over their last 5 and they are 2-5 in their last 7 vs. left handed starters.

Looper will take the mound for the Padres and has struggled over his career vs. San Diego.

He faced them and gave up 10H and 6ER less than 2 weeks ago and over his last 3 starts vs. Padres he's gone just 13 innings and has given up 15ER with 5HR.

Padres are 8-3 in their last 11 vs. RH starters and are hitting .314 and scoring 6.15 runs per 9 innings vs. RHP in their last 5.

Padres have a .316 career average vs. Looper including Adrian Gonzalez who is 6-15.
